Panaji: The possibility that BJP leader and actress Sonali Phogat was murdered by her personal secretary to grab property is getting stronger. Goa Police has gone to Haryana and started investigating Sonali’s bank accounts. Transactions from the bank account are being scrutinized. The bank account of her personal secretary has also been seized by the police.
The bank account of Sonali’s personal assistant Sudhir Sangwan is in Bandhan Bank. The police are collecting information about the whereabouts of Sonali’s property. Police suspect that her personal assistant gave her an extra dose of drugs to grab her property. Police are investigating further in the same direction.
Sonali has a farm house in Dhandur village. She was going to lease that farm house to Sangwan for ten years. He had also applied online for that. But that lease deed could not be executed. After Sonali’s murder, the Goa police are investigating further from the perspective of the property itself. Also, Sangwan was running an illegal extortion racket in the name of Sonali Phogat. In this he has extorted lakhs of rupees from many people. Sudhir Sangwan has swindled many people in the name of agricultural loans based on a firm called Creative Agritech.
Meanwhile, Sonali’s family has written to the Chief Justice of India requesting a CBI probe into the alleged murder case. The family has also said that they will approach the High Court if proper action is not taken against the accused. The family has also claimed that the government is supporting Sudhir Sangwan, one of the prime suspects arrested in the murder case. He has also alleged that the investigation by the Goa police is just a pretext.
Sonali Phogat’s family had alleged that Sonali Phogat was murdered after it was reported that she had died of a heart attack. Phogat’s brother Rinku Dhaka filed an FIR alleging Sonali’s murder. He was not satisfied with the preliminary post-mortem examination. The body was then taken to Hisar in Haryana for cremation. After that a team of Goa Police has also gone to Haryana for further investigation. But Phogot’s nephew Vikas has said that he is not satisfied with this investigation.
